Very kind, but didn't thoroughly explain one of the findings on my initial MF US. I was told my baby had a cyst in the brain. She didn't explain how common the cyst was and the likelihood of it reabsorbing on its own, so I left extremely worried of the finding until I googled it when I got home. Otherwise, she was very kind, I just wish I didn't have extreme panic after my first visit.

Dr. Carlos is the epitome of compassion and excellent care. She is the golden standard at making one feel comfortable when one already has to be seen by the special-specialist at MFM. She answered every question under the sun and gave me the reassurance that my baby is tracking well given recent illnesses. Music to my ears!

Disclosures

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
